Environmental Regulation

  • Elgar Research Reviews in Law

John McEldowney and Sharron McEldowney

This research review assembles an important collection of essays exploring the main issues surrounding the regulation of the environment. The articles illustrate that regulating the environment in the UK is conceptually complex, involves a diverse range of institutions, techniques and methodologies and crosses geographical and national boundaries. In the USA it is more formalised, juridical, adversarial and formally dependent upon legal rules. The articles highlight the fact that despite differences in the UK and the USA's regulatory styles, environmental regulation today has much in common with both traditions.
